Penn vs. Sanchez

Alright, everyone. How do you guys call this fight?

I say Sanchez will much more aggressive than Florian was and much more dynamic than Sherk was. I think he offers the biggest challenge Penn's faced in a long time (besides GSP, of course).

I don't think Sanchez can knock Penn out, though. And if it goes to the ground with Penn on top, let's face it...the fights over and Penn will be the winner.

I think if Sanchez plays it right, I can definately see him wearing Penn down and out pointing him throughout five rounds. But by watching Penn's training videos, you can tell that his mind is in the right place and I believe he will be in very good shape on fight night.

I say Penn by sub (rear naked choke) in round 3.

Re: Penn vs. Sanchez

Sanchez can bring it and it will be a blast to watch the fireworks while they last. I agree that eventually Sanchez is going to the ground though and it will be over. I don't think Sanchez can knock Penn out either. I will be rooting for Sanchez to pull out an upset regardless.

Re: Penn vs. Sanchez

I would have picked Sanchez before BJ got in shape based solely on cardio and pace. Agree he wont knock BJ out, but Sanchez is good in the scrambles and I don't see him getting submitted. I think this will probably go to a decision and as long as BJ doesn't gas out, he will win. Should be a great fight though.

BJ...unfortunately nobody in the LW division is capable of beating him at the moment.

Mir vs. Kongo is on this card too....hmmmmmm.....

Bj is better at every aspect of the fight game. Diego can bring all the intensity he wants, wont help him.

Skill>Intensity

Re: Penn vs. Sanchez

We can foget all the KO talk. Bj has only KO'ed one person. Diego has KO'ed one person and he used his knee to do it. Bj is the better striker and has heavy hands but I dont see either of these guys winning via KO.
